James Madison from Federalist Paper 10:
‘…the public good is disregarded in the conflicts of rival parties, and that measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority…’
In short and as too often happens even in America, ‘might makes right’. This is an evil the founders sought to combat by a proper organization of the federal government. Based on patent decisions since 1995 by SCOTUS and other courts and bills such as the America Invents Act ‘might (still) makes right’ for the flimflamming filthy rich and that battle is still being fought.
